Challenge events are a great way to support the charity - getting fit and achieving a goal while helping First Days support local children really does mean that everyone is a winner.


There are SO many events happening around the country that you can choose to take part in independently and raise funds for First Days. For running events or similar, we are willing to cover your entry costs (up to £50) and send you a running vest/t-shirt on the agreement that you will raise a minimum of £150 for #teamFD!

The events below are organised in-house or with our event partners.
